Chapel Down’s Kit’s Coty vineyard has led the way for English Chardonnay with top class still and sparkling wines. The 2014 vintage Blanc de Blancs feels a step up on its well-reviewed predecessor.
The latest Kit’s had an immediately appealing nose. Green orchard fruit, pear and green apple with the opulence of ripe, juicy peach, immediately leapt out of the glass.
This wine absolutely impressed on first taste, combining zingy English youth with that familiar Kit’s Coty ripeness and richness. Baked apple pudding and ripe stone fruit flavours set the stage for an incredibly approachable Blanc de Blancs.
Overall, this is one of the best sparkling wines I’ve had from Chapel Down to date.
WOTM May 2019 A celebration of English Chardonnay purity, and it comes with such welcoming texture and complexity.
Both driving and giving, ending on a delicious honey roasted nut complexity that lingers elegantly on the finish.
This fine English Chardonnay straddles that fine line between textural oaky delight and precise, punchy fruit purity.
A really grown-up wine that is more Pouilly-Fumé in style than it is New World Sauvignon Blanc.
Fresh, clean and dry with flavours of crisp apple, lime and a twist of tropical fruit.
A wonderfully full and involving palate with superb flavours of orchard fruit and a real nutty oatmeal quality.
